SAN DIEGO—Oct. 20, 2016—SmartDrive Systems, a leader in driving performance solutions that reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency, today announced that Knight Transportation Senior Director of Safety Tom Long will speak at the American Trucking Associations (ATA) Safety, Security and Human Resources National Conference and Exhibition, next week in Oklahoma City. Long will describe best practices and lessons learned in video-based safety, based on Knight Transportation’s selection and fleet-wide deployment of the SmartDrive program earlier this year. Presented by ATA’s Safety Management Council and Transportation Security Council, the conference will take place Oct. 24-26 in Oklahoma City.
In today’s industry, the majority of fleet managers are considering whether to adopt video-based safety technology. But with a growing list of options, the path forward can be confusing. A 10-year veteran of commercial transportation safety management, Long will share Knight’s perspective on factors contributing to carriers’ consideration of whether, when and how to implement a video safety solution. He will walk conference attendees through a step-by-step process for evaluating solutions, selection and through to implementation and roll out. In addition to sharing real-life video “case studies” and the impact video safety is having at Knight Transportation, Long will provide perspective on:
- Why Knight considered adding video to its fleet operation
- What Knight looked for when evaluating video safety vendors
- How the company structured and measured the success of its pilot program
- Best practices for moving from pilot to roll out
- Key insights and lessons learned
- Preparing for the change in company culture
